Ana Tzarev Gallery (NYC)
Ana Tzarev was born in Croatia in 1937 surrounded by the inspiring presence of Renaissance art and the heritage of centuries of deeply rooted culture, but also with the hardships imposed on the region during the Second World War. Her work reveals her formal, classical education and a natural empathy for the dispossessed but her early struggles have been subjugated to her passion for life, her strength of character and the joy of painting.
A true original, Ana Tzarev has taken a new approach to painting, bringing a freshness and vitality to her canvasses seldom seen in the art world today. Her unique new style builds lush sculptural surfaces that give the total experience of the artist being in the moment, fused with the subject. The energy required to render her paintings is tremendous and the resultant works are vibrant, powerful and emotional.
Ana Tzarev's paintings center on her observations and experiences gained from worldwide travels to areas far outside common tourist destinations, reflecting her remarkable knowledge of the history and cultural traditions of the lands she has visited. Through her work Ana Tzarev chronicles dozens of rituals and scenes of daily life worldwide. She holds to a disciplined schedule of painting every day.
My paintings tell stories rich in the diversity, customs and traditions that shaped civilization throughout time. I document today’s culture for future generations so that they can look back with pride on their own heritage and also appreciate the many different cultures that enrich the world. – Ana Tzarev
